Kevin Durant becomes 2nd youngest player ever to reach 20000 points

Kevin Durant stops to sign a basketball inside the players lounge at the the newly unveiled Kevin Durant Texas Basketball Center at the University of Texas on Friday Jan. 5 2018 in Austin Texas. The basketball facilities have received numerous upgrades

KD finished the game against the Clippers with 40 points.

Griffin sat out two games after sustaining a concussion Saturday.

While neither of these contract figures compares well to the contract signed by JJ Redick, his one-year deal of $23 million was an unusual circumstance because Philadelphia had so much cap space.

Durant did it against then first-year coach Mike Anderson, who would later leave to coach one of Texas' oldest rivals, Arkansas, after what would be a successful run at Missouri. New Orleans' DeMarcus Cousins (587,835) is fourth.

There will be races all the way to the end.

Can Golden State contain Giannis Antetokounmpo?

After the Clippers led for the first 43 minutes, the Kings rallied into a 109-108 advantage on a jumper by Zach Randolph with 4:14 to go, capping a 17-2 flurry. The NBA is like baseball with the second wild-card playoff berth now: More teams than usual will have a realistic mathematical shot of getting into the playoffs when the trade window closes. Most importantly, they have to get themselves fully healthy; Curry retweaking his injured ankle is concerning, and as we've seen in recent weeks, a locked-in Stephen Curry unlocks just about everything for the Warriors.

And they're 33-9, still leading the National Basketball Association.

Having played on five teams over the last six years, Williams seemed like a throw-in to the trade - a player who could help the Clippers in doses this season but was likely not long for the team.

He's nearly certain to finish among the top-five vote-getters in the MVP race for the 13th consecutive/season, and might even win the award for what would be a fifth time.

Yes, Golden State's sharp-shooting star is feeling it again, and he's proud to be, in his words, "that presence that kind of gets us going".

Golden State has been shuttling key players in and out of the lineup for weeks, dealing with a barrage of injuries. "It'll make for a much more hard challenge for sure".

His free-throw percentage is * a href="*GE*100" target="_blank" rel="noopener" *Top 5 among those who get to the line often and he is phenomenal on above the break three-pointers.

Why surprising? In Durant's first nine seasons in the league with the Sonics/Thunder, he never averaged more than 1.3 blocks per game, despite his athleticism and height. He already led the Thunder to one appearance in the NBA Finals in 2012, losing to LeBron James and the Miami Heat. The Sixers are only 9-9 in Philadelphia this season.

Yup, Terrence Ross. The 2013 Slam Dunk Champion tied Vince Carter's record of 51 points on January 25, 2014 with a 16/29 shooting performance and 10/17 threes.

The Clippers had many reasons to give up this season.
